Balagane - Jeszcza Rez

Besides having a name which looks like a Scrabble winner, Jeszcze Raz has Yves Desrosiers as producer from Balagane, who collaborated with Lhasa Desela. Balagane (which means 'bordello') is also up for a Juno award. The disc combines Eastern European and Middle Eastern flavors with Polish and Hebrew underpinnings. Bamidbar (The Desert) is distinctly apropos for these troubled times. Jeszcze dreams of a world where Jews, Sepharade, Ashkenaze, Arabs and Christians live together in peace.
